    How hard to install jerrys metal washers

    For SCer

    I have basic tools and torq wrench...besides that do i need anything? Is there a write up for doing this or instructions? I haven't ordered the part yet. Is it a direct swap from ceramic to metal, i mean do you have to mess with shims or anything like that to get right size?

    Sorry i know i sound very dumb right now.

    You might need some special tools like the thin wrench.

    Easy to do if you can turn a wrench well.


    The biggest thing is a very good digital type torque wrench.
    My buddies Snap On I use is $500.

    Others here use a dial type that you watch as you turn it.

    Craftsman has a digital for around $200 that would work.

    A plain ole torque wrench will Not work.

    The special tools would help as well.

    Do yourself a favor and get all the sc tools at once. I learned the hard way,,but I`m sometimes a dumbasss. Once u get all the tools its not hard. I advise no beer and u will need a VERY clean work space. Just take your time and follow directions in the tech section to the t.

    same here..regular old craftsman, nothing fancy. you can check the slip with it, it takes some patience but it can be done!

    Sorry but there is no way to check slip movement with a click type.

    I know you can keep adjusting back and forth until you find that spot you think is ??? lb.s in. but those wrenches are no where near what it takes to check the slip movement.

    If you did it that way you are just guessing.

    Just my .02

    In my opinion the best way is with a dial type torque wrench. That way you can read the "rolling torque" while the clutch is slipping.

    With a clicker type you are taking a guess at the actual breaking point of when the clutch just starts to slip.
